January 25, 2021 - The Shelby County Courthouse has a dumpster located in the parking lot behind the structure strictly for the use of the courthouse.
A sign located on the dumpster clearly indicates in English/Spanish, "Not for Public Use! Video Surveillance in Use! May Be Fined!"
Staff at the courthouse have requested individuals utilizing the dumpster cease doing so, as the dumpster is not intended for the use of the general public and at times becomes too full for it's intended purpose resulting from the abuse.
Individuals who have utilized this dumpster in the past are strongly encouraged to no longer use of the dumpster.

We appreciate all of the community support of the Princess Ball and we look forward to seeing everyone in 2022!
January 19, 2021 - Women around the country came together today in celebrating the dream coming true of having a woman in the White House and Shelby County women joined the celebration in 'Chucks and Pearls' style on the Historic Courthouse grounds.
Vanessa Davis, spokesperson for the group said, "This is a group of women coming together just to celebrate women. To celebrate a milestone, we feel like Vice-President Kamala Harris broke that glass ceiling. We haven't had, we've only had men in the White House in those major positions - President and Vice-President, and so to have the first woman Vice-President is reason to celebrate. And then to have the first black woman Vice-President is a dream come true for little black girls and young women who aspire to serve and to uplift and to build up our communities.
"'Chucks and Pearls' was a way to come together to celebrate one another and to celebrate her accomplishment and who she is and to just emulate her. Those are two of the things that are dear to her. She loves her Chuck Taylors and as she's moving about, she is so busy, she's been a D.A., she's been an Attorney General. So, she's been running around in suits and heels and it came a time when she had to get out of those and kick them off and get comfortable and just feel good in her skin and be able to do what she needed to do. So, her Chuck Taylors afforded her the opportunity to be able to move about like she needed to.
"The pearls, she is a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority which is a Greek-letter sorority which encourages young women, young college women, to be the best that they can be and to be leaders and to uplift other young women. They focus on having good ethics and just being of good character. The Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority was founded and incorporated by a group of women, 20 women, and they call those 20 women the 20 pearls. She wears pearls and the other members of Alpha Kappa Alpha wear pearls to commemorate their founders.
"Two people from Texas decided it would be a good idea and they went on Facebook and started a Facebook group called 'Chucks and Pearls' and it would be a good way to honor her. Now, there are other women who will aspire to wear pearls. Pearls are something that makes women feel elegant and always have. I think that its a good way to celebrate her and to celebrate one another as women."
"She had made a quote saying that the university that she went to and family and her sorority and the Divine Nine [Black Greek-letter Organizations] are people and things that are very important to her. I'm a member of the Divine Nine being a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority which is also a Greek-letter sorority that focuses on service, service to our community, and to leadership."
The women in the community who have celebrated Vice-President Kamala Harris and her journey to the White House wore their 'Chucks and Pearls' t-shirts along with wearing their pearls and their Chuck Taylors stood together for a group photo on January 20, 2021 to remember this moment in history.
